Vodafone India today announced the rollout of its Super Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services in Maharashtra & Goa circle, covering popular cities such as Pune, Nagpur, Nashik, Vasai and Goa. With this launch, Vodafone now has VoLTE coverage across Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Gujarat and Rajasthan and will be extended across the country in a phased manner over the next few months. So the Vodafone Super VoLTE service allows customers to make voice calls through data and enjoy HD quality service. The Vodafone VoLTE service also offers superfast call connection speed.
As expected, Vodafone Super VoLTE service is completely free and has no additional charges for using the service. All the Vodafone SuperNet 4G customers can access Vodafone VoLTE, and all calls will be billed as per existing plan or pack benefits.
Announcing the launch of the Vodafone VoLTE service, Ashish Chandra, Business Head - Maharashtra & Goa, Vodafone India, said, “We have been making significant investments to expand, upgrade and modernise our network to ensure that we provide the finest service experience and seamless connectivity to our valued customers."
"We are delighted that Vodafone is now launching VoLTE services in Maharashtra & Goa beginning with Pune, Nagpur, Nashik, Vasai and Goa and will soon extend it to other key cities. Vodafone VoLTE is a step further towards enhancing customer experience and enabling our customers in Maharashtra & Goa to explore newer possibilities with their smart devices,” he further added.
Even though Vodafone expanded its VoLTE coverage to a new circle, the supported device list did not see any increase though. Vodafone Super VoLTE is currently supported in smartphones such as OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, 5T, Xiaomi Redmi 4, Mi Mix 2, Mi Max 2, Nokia 5, Nokia 8, Honor View 10, 9i, 7X, Honor 8 Pro, Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro and Galaxy J7 Nxt.
However, Vodafone says that more devices will join the list going forward. As per our sources, by the end of this month, Apple will be releasing a software update with Vodafone VoLTE support to iPhones, while Samsung and Xiaomi are already testing the feature in several of their smartphones.
